About the show ///////////////////////////
Eun-Me Ahn arrives in Europe with the dancers of her company and 6 very special guests! After a series of mind-blowing shows that depicted all Korean generations, from grandmothers to teenagers, she invites five young dancers from five Asian countries.
All are born in 2000 and unveil their hopes, their dances contemporary and traditional. Because in Asia, if the youth is ultra-connected, it remains attached to its cultural background, including Dragons !
They are feared in Europe? In Asia, they bring lightness, joy and optimism. So, the tone is set for a captivating, burlesque and sometimes weightless performance, like a kaleidoscope of shapes, colors and rhythms, in the extravagant style that is the trademark of the enfant terrible of Korean dance. Eun-Me Ahn, her company and their guests move through a criss-crossing of presences and holographic projections fruit of a creative storm.
In conclusion : In Asia, “Z generation” tackles future with energy and freshness. A source of inspiration.
